API Digest: Diving into the Fancy World of APIs
A good many of fascinating API blog posts came out in the recent while, and API Digest is here to let you know about some of them. We are starting with an imaginative one.
Last week, Kristopher Sandoval made our day with a beautiful tale presented on Nordic APIs blog. A Tale of Four API Designs: Dissecting Common API Architectures will take you into the magical world of API approaches and introduce four primary architectural design styles each having their history and experience.
- RFC 5988, Web Linking
- HAL, JSON Hypertext Application Language
- JSON Hyper-Schema
- Home Document Format
Protobuf instead of JSON communicate with a frontend? Vincent Prouillet has tried this out so that you can see what a client/server using Protobuf would look like.
- common myths surrounding APIs
- developing an internal API as a first crucial step with many benefits (from both the IT department and company perspectives)
- providing APIs to others as the next step
- an important conclusion
Come back in a week to find more articles reviewed for you. If you would like to suggest an article to be listed in the next API Digest, feel free to do this by emailing us.
Let your week be a fairy tale. ;)
